  • 6 Jenny // Dec 8, 2011 at 10:33 pm

    Denise – You mean the dozen or so photos above? That is already in place — did it not work for you? If you click on any photo on this page, it should take you to the recipe.

    this is cool.
    just a tiny thing I noticed: there are a few links clumped mistakenly together. Arugula, Asparagus, and Avocado all just link to Avocado.
    the same thing happened with Yogurt and Zucchini, I think.

  • 8 andrea // Mar 16, 2012 at 9:12 pm

    Fantastic! Just found this link, three months later.

  • 9 Terri // Oct 10, 2012 at 12:41 pm

    I am looking for Emily’s Meatloaf , found it in the book but can’t find it on the website. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • 10 Jenny // Jan 28, 2013 at 8:09 am

    Hi, I’m a newbie to your site, but I love it! Something that would be helpful for someone like me – having an alternate way of organizing the recipe by prep time (or maybe just a list of the ones that can be done in like under 15 minutes or something? I think that might be really helpful, especially in a pinch!

  • 11 Mary Elizabeth Bloom // May 22, 2013 at 2:16 pm

    Dear Jenny,
    How I have enjoyed your blog on your trip to Paris, with kids. Though my boys are 36 and 34 and his 35 and 33, I found myself wishing I could have shared this experience with them. Richard and I just had a trip to Paris in April and cruised the River Seine. We have just traversed so many of the places you were describing and it gave me joy.
    I, too, have a MacBook Pro and as I was sharing with family and friends, I discovered how easy the accents were to add on my MacBook. When you wish to add one to a letter, say as it Chateau, you would type c h a and hold down the letter you want the accent on and after a second or so, the list with the accents will appear and you enter the number corresponding with the accent you wish to add to your word. You can try to highlight the one you want, but I found it far easier to simply use the number! Try it… you will smile!
    Au revoir, Madam and thank you for the lovely descriptions… you brought a smile to my face and a song to my heart!

  • 12 Eusebia // Sep 5, 2013 at 1:28 am

    Everyonne needs a good starting point, but every recipe does not need to bee followed exactly.
    LIkewise, chicken livers could be fried and served with gravy.
    95, or the Penne with Roasted Poscuitto which come
    topped with mozzarella cheese for $10.

  • 13 Leslie // May 28, 2014 at 9:21 pm

    Not that this isn’t already a wonderful resource, and I know you have better things to do, but for some anal reason I can’t fully explain, I’d love to see them in alphabetical order.
    Actually I was looking for a specific recipe you mentioned someplace and had to cruise slowly thru the list instead of just zooming down to the Ts.
    PS – now that I think about it, never mind. I think it’s a good thing to make us look thru the entire list cause I found 3 more things I want to try.

    I am sooo looking forward to making your Coq au Vin!
